First Colombian University to Support DOAJ!

We are very happy to welcome Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas as the first institution from Colombia to become a DOAJ member.

Colombia is the 11th country in the world with the most journals indexed in DOAJ (325). In 2018 we indexed 59 new journals in DOAJ and we hope we continue to have a fruitful collaboration with Colombian institutions.

The Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas, as an autonomous institution of higher education, guarantees open access to articles so that the content becomes agile and visible. Being members of DOAJ with 12 scientific journals reaffirms the commitment to implement good editorial practices with high quality standards.

Seasons Greetings

We would like to thank all of you for what has turned out to be a wonderful and successful year for DOAJ: we launched our advanced application form and created our network of voluntary Associate Editors and Editors who help us process reapplications and new applications.

The DOAJ Team is particularly grateful this year to all our sponsors, publisher members and members, without whom we would not be able to do our work. We have worked extensively with our technical partners, Cottage Labs, this year to improve the DOAJ platform, the user experience, the quality of the data and the review & application process. Without your financial support this wouldn’t have been possible. Everyone who backs DOAJ financially has directly contributed to this work and the safeguarding of the reputation of high quality, peer-reviewed, open access scholarly publishing.

Seasons Greetings and we wish you a prosperous 2015!
